New Delhi, Oct 07: Lt. General Faiz Hameed who was heading the ISI is likely to be the next Pakistan Army Chief. He was made the Peshawar Corps Commander as it is mandatory for the contenders to the post of Pakistan Army chief to have commanded a corps level formation.
It is also mandatory that the contender commands the corps level formation for one year. Lt. General Faiz Hameed could well end up becoming the army chief, but that would be subject to General Qamar Bajwa not seeking another two year extension for himself. General Bajwa would complete his six year tenure as the army chief in November 2022.
